Well, every year politicians stand up and honour the dead... The news media picks up on it... It's discussed a bit in schools, and so on... So every year, you might pick up more stories.

The year of 1918 was huge to the end of WW I. The Germans were stretched too thin, and had last too many key fortified positions, such as Vimy Ridge that I found out about the year before. I hadn't know about that either... but the Canadian mint released a special $2 coin to commemorate it, and then I did some reading on it. It really was a turning point in WW I.

Whoa. *didnt know that eaither*
Whilst i agree that we DO indeed pick up new stories evey year about WW1, I tend to forget the ones from the years before lmao.
In short, i have extremely short-term memory.

I dont think I remember much from Psych 101 (other than having a basket-case for a professor, lolll), but as I understand it, there's long-term memory, which is remembered over months & years... short term memory, which is more measured in minutes, and a medium-range memory that I don't remember the first thing about -- other than it exists. lol

But yeah, I have a [email protected] long-term memory too. Sad

No, it's been used for years, both in Canada, Britain, and elsewhere. Smile
